Florida Panther

Closely related to the North American cougar, this large cat roamed across the Southeastern United States until the late 1600’s when human development began to encroach into the panther’s habitat. Left with roughly 5% of its historic range, this panther hasn’t been seen outside of southern tip of Florida in decades and is today known as the state’s official animal, although it is one of the rarest creatures on Earth.
